Link Chain Fence


I am installing a link chain fence and purchased a double drive gate for access. It works fine. I cannot get any installation instructions for a way keep the installed drive gate closed ("locked"). Can anyone help? Question from the wife. The husband adds "The lock that came with the gate has 2 parts that would clamp to the gate and a long rod with a U shaped piece at the top.

Usually with a double wide gate, one or both side have a rod sort of piece of hardware that slides down parellel to the poles on the free ends into a female recess in the ground to keep the bottoms from moving. Then you can anchor the top ends on either side to each other with gate hardware, chain or whatever.

Exactly what we have. We actually have rods on both 'panels' at the free ends of the gates. Our dogs liked to jump up and open the side that wasn't supported. Score one for the humans!
